Birmingham too. At least Atlanta. There's gotta be some place she'd play somewhere in Birmingham though, and that's only 30 or 40 minutes from me. It would be so nice. lol

I'm having a new music day today. I picked up Aimee Mann's Bachelor #2 and Lost in Space from yourmusic.com, and I'm not disappointed! Great pop-rock stuff. Does anyone else like her work?

How funny, Tracy. I've been listening to Aimee Mann the past few days as well. Lost In Space was my first album... I got it last fall and totally fell for Aimee's music. LIS was a constant in my cd player for awhile.

A few days ago I started listening to Bachelor #2... while I wasn't initially as impressed, I think that's just because I was already familiar with Aimee's style, and it wasn't as exciting as the first time I heard her. Anyway, the thing has been pretty much stuck in my CD player since... it's getting a LOT of plays.

They are both great... I hope you love them!

(Btw, her new album 'The Forgotten Arm' comes out in May!)

Just got Bachelor No. 2, I'm With Stupid, Lost In Space, and Whatever a couple days ago. Really enjoying them - I love her style.

Gillian and Penguin, Bachelor #2 is my first, and upon first spin I'm loving it! I'm contemplating getting Whatever the next time I have some extra cash.

I have all of Aimee's albums, and Aimee, in my opinion, generally gets better with every CD. The Magnolia soundtrack was the first one I got, then Bachelor No. 2, then Whatever, then Lost In Space, then I'm With Stupid.

Lost In Space is definitely my favorite, and one of the best albums ever created by anyone in my opinion. I never skip a single song. "It's Not" is in my top five greatest songs ever written.

The Magnolia soundtrack is my second favorite. The songs at the end are disposable, but every single one of the ones Aimee wrote are amazing, especially "You Do," "Build That Wall," and of course "Wise Up" and "Save Me."

Bachelor No. 2 comes in third, or maybe tied, with the Magnolia soundtrack. I love "How Am I Different," "Satellite," "Ghost World," "Calling It Quits," and the Jeff Buckley tribute, "Just Like Anyone."

I haven't had I'm With Stupid very long, but I already know it will come in next because I have heard most of the songs from it, and I like many more of them than the ones on Whatever. "Long Shot," "Choice In the Matter," "Sugarcoated," "You Could Make a Killing," "Amateur," and my favorite, "Par For the Course," are all awesome.

I have mixed feelings about Whatever. "4th of July," "Stupid Thing," and "I've Had It," are some of the most beautiful ballads she's ever written, but I think "Mr. Harris" is crap, and some of the more generic rock songs all sound alike to me.

If I was going to recommend which one to get next, Tracy, I'd probably suggest the Magnolia soundtrack. If you'd rather get an album full of stuff you've never heard though, I'd get I'm With Stupid.

Also, you can listen to songs from her new album at www.aimeemann.com. I really like what I've heard.

Has anyone gotten her DVD yet??

$15 seems like an awfully good price for a DVD/CD set.

Aimee Mann - The Forgotten Arm

Postby deaeterna » Sun May 15, 2005 9:27 am

How are all of you Aimee fans liking this one? I've read some rather insulting reviews, but I find it to be quite a bit different from her previous work. It's more percussion and bass-driven it seems to me, and rocks a bit harder while still keeping her melodies in tact. I really like it, in fact. Thoughts?
